(Pajiba)   When the showrunners of Game of Thrones came to GRR Martin to get permission to make the show, after a 5 hour meeting he asked them a test question to see if they "got" the books: "Who is Jon Snow's real mother?"   ( divider line

I've always liked G.R.R. Martin's writing, especially The Lord of the Rings.

Romanes Eunt Domus: nmrsnr: DamnYankees: Didn't Aegon die when he was a baby?

Spoilers: It doesn't look that way in book 5.

Errr...more potential spoilers for your spoilers: he may not be what he claims to be and Daenerys was warned about the mummer's dragon.

Reading the short stories (featuring Dunk and Egg) and the references to Aegor "Bittersteel" Rivers and the Golden Company actually supporting "Young Griff" and it's possible that we may be looking at a potential Blackfyre Rebellion part 3.  Why else would a mercenary company founded by Blackfyre rebels aid a Targaryen?

Dingleberry Dickwad: Texian: But Jon Snow still knows nothing?

Knew enough to turn Ygritte's crank.

I'd like to be her Fist of The First Men, if you know what I mean.

It's so obvious that Jon is a Targaryean that if it turns out that he's not it'll only be because Martin decided to change it last minute.

kronicfeld: Slaxl: I don't keep up on theories, but I do remember whilst reading it thinking that Ned might not be the father, but she might, but I can't remember when I thought that, or why. It was too long ago.

The quick rundown:

The more we hear about him, Rhaegar wasn't the monster that his father was. He was a fairly reasonable and honorable dude, in that context at least. There's actually a supportable side theory that he was planning a coup to depose his insane father. He didn't actually "abduct" Lyanna; that is what Robert chooses to believe because he was in love with her. Rather, they ran away together. Lyanna was being protected at the Tower of Joy by three of the Kingsguard, including Rhaegar's best friend, who had no reason to be standing between Ned and a simple prisoner of war. Ned found Lyanna in a "bed of blood," strongly implying childbirth, especially because there's never been any implication that anyone willfully injured her. Lyanna make Ned "promise" something, likely to keep secret her son's lineage, as his life would be forfeit if Robert ever found out (see, e.g., Robert calling out a hit on Dany and Viserys). Ned sacrifices his honor and lies that he knocked up a maid to create a cover story for Jon's existence.
